Cardi B is one of 2017’s major breakout stars. Although she got her start several years ago on VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop: New York, she’s becoming even more of a household name thanks to her hit song “Bodak Yellow.” Naturally, that means she’s got plenty of interviews on her plate these days. Perfect example: Cardi B sat down to chat with Jimmy Fallon, and she seriously stole the show.

Fallon is a veteran celebrity interviewer, so you’d think nothing would surprise him. But Cardi B completely stopped him in his tracks. We’re not sure if he was just having an off night or what, but Fallon couldn’t quite get it together during their chat. Cardi B, for her part, was charming and hilarious as they discussed everything from her New York City background to her recent engagement.

Before we get to the interview, please feast your eyes on that incredible jacket. Yes, it sort of looks like she’s wearing a Muppet. But the chicest Muppet of all time, right? According to Fashionista, the topper is by New York-based designer Rubin Singer. The artist wore it with smartly subdued black trousers and matching green Christian Louboutin pumps.

Now, let’s roll the tape.

Fallon clearly had difficulty holding back his own laughter. He’s lucky Cardi B was more than capable of steering the conversation.

He’s supposed to be good at this, right?

It really is the perfect end to a terrible year.

Only in our dreams.

Cardi B might want to consider a side career in late-night television — if she wasn’t so busy dominating the music charts, that is.
